3-night bahamas. Overall, It wasnt what I expected since it was my 1st royal caribbean experience. Most reviews are in favor of this cruiseline over others. But I am not so sure it is welldeserved. "No all that shines is gold".
Waiters in the restaurant at dinning time are so complicated. some of them have chosen the wrong career. At the moment of breakfast, they stack as many people from different groups as possible even if they dont know each others so they dont have to deal/clean with that many tables. Food, nothing spectacular and most of the time cold. Housekeeping: Good, everytime that we request housekeeping was there doing their job. Port of calls: Nassau, Dirty, stincky, messy place. Nasty and rude locals. I dont know how that 3rd-world island can get away recieving international turism. Coco Cay, wonderful island, this one is in fact worthy of receiving turists that have spent a lot of money to get there.
I will definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again, but I'll keep my expectations low next time
My first cruise experience. I will never forget. I can't complain about anything related to the cruise or the ports of call. Originally we were supposed to go to eastern caribbean, but bcuz of the huracanes we ended up going to western, lovely ports and excursions, or even if you dont book an excursions there is much to do as u get out of the boat.
The Service: housekeeping and waiters amazing, those people work restless they well-deserve what they make and more.
The food onboard zero complaints, although people waste too much; it is obvious some people eat a lot, easy to tell by their size, but grabbing 3 plates off the buffet and eat only 2 of them to throw the other one away and go back in the buffet line, it is just not humane.
Dream Ship is a Pearl of architecture, although I wish it can have more pools, but the 10 or 12 hubtubs kinda cover it up.
The Cruise Director known as Butch very profesional and all activities very fun, I was with the schedule in my hand all the time to not miss any of them, worthy
I will book for another cruise, in another cruise, so I can taste from something different, but I am so pleased with Carnival that I am afraid that any other cruise line wouldnt be that good.
